Phoney footage

Text settings

After PMQs, the burning question around Westminster is this: did Cameron overstep the mark when he shouted at Brown, "What a phoney"? Good point well made, I thought, but to other kinder souls it may come across as a bit harsh. Alan Johnson talks about Cameron coming across like Harry Flashman at times. That's because they look at Cameron and think "public school bully". The "phoney" moment comes 2:22 into the footage above - so what do CoffeeHousers think?
